The role of brain angiotensin II (ANG II) in mediating cardiovascular, vasopressin, and renin responses to hemorrhage was assessed in conscious spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and in normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and Wistar rats. Intracerebroventricular administration of losartan (10 micrograms) and saralasin (1 microgram.microliter-1.min-1)(More)
OBJECTIVES We conducted a study to evaluate the impact of obesity on erectile function in men with erectile dysfunction. METHODS Three hundred and twenty-five consecutive patients with erectile dysfunction were evaluated. We classified the men into 2 groups according to body weight: <120% of the ideal body weight, and >/=120%. We compared several erectile(More)
PURPOSE The change in arterial flow velocity with age in patients with a normal response to pharmacological injection was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 64 patients with erectile dysfunction who responded well to intracavernous injection of 10 micrograms. prostaglandin E1 with well sustained penile rigidity for longer than 1 hour and normal(More)
This study was undertaken to investigate whether prolonged stress interferes with sexual behavior and changes biochemical and physiologic mechanisms. Experiments were repeated three times with different rats in each period. In all, 63 female Sprague-Dawley rats were employed, with 21 rats in each period, and the control group was maintained at room(More)
We investigated the functional and histological changes after oophorectomy in the rabbit clitoris and vagina to determine the mechanism responsible for the development of arousal disorder in postmenopausal women. Twenty mature female New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into three groups: control; oophorectomy; and estrogen replacement after(More)
Our objective was to assess the effects of chronic central angiotensin II (Ang II) blockade on the basal regulation of blood pressure, heart rate (HR), arginine vasopressin (AVP), renin, epinephrine (EPI), norepinephrine (NE) and on cardiovascular and hormonal responses to hemorrhage in conscious rats. Losartan (4 micrograms/h), or artificial cerebrospinal(More)
UNLABELLED Korean kimchi is known for its myriad of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) with diverse bioactive compounds. This study was undertaken to isolate an efficient antifungal LAB strain among the isolated kimchi LABs. One thousand and four hundred LABs isolated from different kimchi samples were initially screened against Aspergillus niger. The strain(More)
